    The answer to that was KidsWB watched it until it got replaced in 2008, mainly because it had more original toons than the ABC sat morning block.

    One Saturday Morning and Kids WB are the earliest examples of me watching a Saturday morning block that I can remember.

    I'm pretty sure that the first Saturday morning block I watched was Kids' WB. It's the first block that I can recall watching at least.

    Either Disney's One Saturday Morning (but the second era that had The Weekenders and Lloyd in Space) or Kids' WB, but I think I mostly watched Kids' WB during the afternoons.

    I wouldn't really say I grew up with any of them, but I do remember wanting to watch One Saturday Morning when it first came out. I didn't get to see it much because my dad would always change the channel. I think it had to do with him wanting my brother and I to watch shows he was familiar with.

    For me, It would be Kids' WB. I'd remember watching shows, such as, Xiaolin Showdown and Static Shock on that channel.

    Being over 50, I'd say I started in the late 60's, but because actual memories of that era are so hazy, I'm thankful that there were syndicated reruns of Space Ghost, Aquaman, Spider-Man, et al when I was a teenager.

    I grew up with the pre-cheap anime import "unbranded years". When shows were mostly produced by DiC and Nelvana, NBC still ran cartoons, CBS ruled the roost with Muppet Babies and TMNT, ABC ran shows out of order (if they even ran em at all due to sports preemptions) with weird claymation bumpers, and nobody gave a crap about Fox until X-men (and later Power Rangers) came on.

    Thooooose were the days!!!!!

    Fox Kids, CBS Kidshow/Nick Jr. on CBS, and One Saturday Morning since I was born, and then Kids' WB in 2002. I had two FOX stations at the time though. WFLX 29 had it, but not WSVN 7. All they did was their news and then CNN Headline News. Had I realized they dropped it in 1993, I probably would not had been somewhat confused....

    One Saturday Morning. Very fond memories of waking up at around 7am or so (I can't remember the exact time) to catch the beginning of it after some local kids' junk on my ABC affiliate.

    My favourite kids block was definitely TamTam, which used to air every morning on a Belgian channel called VTM, but I could only watch it on Sunday mornings. I remember watching lots of Looney Tunes*, Cow and Chicken, Batman of the Future*, The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries*, The PowerPuff Girls, Scooby-Doo*, TMNT (2003), The Batman* and a Flemish show called Big en Betsy.

    The logo looked like this:

    And here are three mute bumpers. They weren't mute on TV. I remember kids shouting ''Helaba!'' in every bumper. (pronounced more or less like this: Heyla ba)

    It has apparantly also aired Dexter's Laboratory, but I only remember seeing it on other channels. I was unfortunately too young for Justice League* and X-Men Evolution*. (and they've never aired Justice League Unlimited :( )

    *these cartoons were aired in English with subtitles :)

    I think the first one I watched was the CBS Saturday morning block from the early '90s. I remember watching Garfield and Friends and Pee-Wee's Playhouse. As I got older, I didn't really stick to a particular Saturday morning block (maybe ABC but only because they aired Sonic the Hedgehog from 1993 to 1995).

    I first watched One Saturday Morning with my older brother, as well as Kids' WB with him. As I got older, I stuck with 4KidsTV's girls block (Magical DoReMi, Winx Club and Bratz), qubo (my favorites were VeggieTales on TV and 3-2-1 Penguins! and Larryboy Stories) and Kewlopolis (I watched the whole block sans Sushi Pack and Dino Squad, since those were time-slotted against my two favorite qubo shows).

    It was probably Kids' WB, then ABC Kids because of the Disney Programmings, and Fox Box/4Kids TV cause i grew up with Sonic X I pretty much watched them all when I can.

    Not sure, it's been a long, long time. But The earliest I can remember watching Saturday morning cartoons was watching Tarzan Lord of the Jungle, The Bugs Bunny and Road Runner Show, The Super Friends and the Shazam/Isis Power Hour. I'm sure there were others.

    I was pretty young, so I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it was Nick on CBS.

    Saved By The Bell doesn't count as animation, but I remember that. The cartoons I can't be specific about, but I think The Flintstones and The Jetsons? This isn't Saturday morning, but I remember coming home after school to watch Duck Tales, maybe that's a different topic.
